If you haven't already, get their debut, Lapsus. Besides Cormorant's Dwellings, Lapsus was my favorite album of 2011.

I miss Fall of Efrafa as well. So sad I'll never be able to see them live.

Just so you know, the only member of FOE in Light Bearer is Alex. He writes the lyrics but doesn't compose any of the music.

A couple listens in and I'm a bit disappointed to be honest. Maybe my expectations were too high but I just find this album to be a lot less memorable and epic than Lapsus. The melodies and riffs just fall a little short for me. The length is also a bit taxing and there are a few transitions that seemed abrupt and inorganic. Still top ten for me most likely but probably not aoty like I had hoped for.

I will say it wasn't as epic, but it's because I feel there's a different tone to the record. As where Lapsus was more about betrayal, this seems to be more about Lucifer's vengeance, and the start of the war between him and the false god. He's angry and wants to get his word out and expose the false god's lies. I don't usually think the music is intertwined with lyrics in a lot of metal, but it seems to be with Light Bearer, even if Alex only writes the lyrics.

You have to know what your getting into to be honest. Most of the time (such as on Pink Flame), he doesn't take himself seriously and his songs are just hilarious and enjoyable. There are other releases where he raps seriously and he can actually rap pretty damn well. Lil B's style won't stick with everyone, but people like BloodoftheKings and myself are Based 4 Life
